HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS & PETS

PLAN AHEAD

Hurricanes can be very traumatic for pets, too. Pets cannot be left home alone and should be with family to reduce fear, stress, and trauma. Keep a recent photo of your pet(s) and vaccination records on hand. Have adequate food and water as well as a secure carrier or leash & harnesses ready. Have at least two weeks of medications stockpiled. Have a list of pet friendly shelters, hotels, and boarding facilities not in your immediate area. Have identification on both carriers and pets.

EVACUATION

Know your evacuation zone and route for exit. Have a final destination planned. Make sure any anxiety or sedation medications are approved for your pet. You will be responsible for the care, cleaning , and feeding of all pets at a shelter so be sure take adequate supplies.

STAYING AT HOME

Make sure you and all pets are in a safe and secure location. Plan for extra supplies and have adequate food and water available. Have additional water available for decontamination if there is risk of dirty water exposure. Store food and water in sealed containers.

AFTER THE STORM

Use caution when going outside or allowing pets outside. Do not consume or allow to be consumed, potentially contaminated food or water. Pets may become disoriented from unfamiliar scents or landmarks, so keep dogs on leash and pay attention to their mood.
